One Name Is Tragically Too Few

How is it that a Person is meant to 
Walk around with a single name
To their name? Humans are far
More interesting and complex
Than one nom can attach,
Socially and individually;
Where can a sense of alignment
Arise when the dot on a line
Is the only dimension to record
One existence, under nature's 
Ten thousand things; a nickname
For every circumstance, perhaps
Even every day: the temporary 
Tattoos who wear off the arm,
The legs, the cheek, a constant
Sampling and sticking and staying,
To illuminate every connection,
Relationship, Personhood, the
Thous will have it and the eyes
Are shimmering in every color
That reflects the sun.
